Poured from a bottle into a pint glass black with a fluffy tan head.
Smells delicious the chocolate is right there, along with roasted malts and coffee
Taste is great, roasted malts and creamy chocolate a little alcohol in there to remind you that this is a beer.
Very smooth mouth feel, the texture of this beer is excellent
I really enjoyed this beer, It smells and tastes great!

Syrupy thick and jet black with a thin, but tight head on top that shrinks to a ring around the glass and leaves a bit of lacing.

Huge nose which consists of dark chocolate, toasted malt a hint of mocha and even some hops. Big malt, big chocolate.

Tastes just like it smells. Big roasty flavors with lots of chocolate and a strong presence of bitter hops. Really tasty.

This has a really big mouthfeel. Nice smoothness from the oatmeal with some mostly creamy carbonation. A bit prickly on the tongue.

Very drinkable and goes down quickly. I would have to guess this is around 6% alcohol which is more than your typical OS. Really great representation of style here with a unique touch of bigger body and chocolate. Highly recommend.

12oz bottle into a Pint Glass

A- Pours solid black with a thin 1 finger tan head that doesn't last other than a nice thin coating on the top. Not much lacing other than some small spots.

S- Dark roasted malts with some nice sweet oatmeal and chocolate. Definitely some coffee in there with a slight nuttiness.

T- Just like it smells. Tons of roasted malts with a nice bittersweet dark chocolate. Nice fullness and flavor from the oats definitely some coffee in there.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice bitter finish but not bad.

This is a rich, very drinkable beer. I would put in the sessionable stout section, if there was one.

Pours a deep black with a tight brown head, more like root beer than anything else.

Deep malty nose gives way to a rich, roasty flavor with more than a hint of chocolate and silkiness of oatmeal. Deep subtle chocolate makes this parable with dessert, and the finish is nicely balanced, not sweet at all. Superb. Light yet heavy mouthfeel, silky and smooth. I am loving this as an alternative to those 12oz stouts that I feel I must share because of the abv power. This one I could have a few of my own. Well done.

A new beer from Tyranena and it's a good one.

A. Dark brown to black appearance with a tan head that slowly recedes to thin film. Decent lacing is left behind.

S. Real nice dark roasted malt aroma with some coffee and chocolate undertones.

T. Dark roasted malts in a pretty big way with nice hop bitterness on the finish.

M. Medium bodied and silky smooth with low carbonation. The mouthfeel of this beer really adds to its drinkability.

D. This is an impressive offering from Tyranena. It is well made and really easy to drink. A nice change from so many "big" stouts that hit the market this time of year. Having 3 or 4 of these beers in a night would not be a chore. Worth seeking out - recommended.

A- Cola brown on the pour with a small amount of head in spite of a vigourous pour. Sits dark as sin in the glass

S- Definite oatmeal in the nose with a good hint of chocolate towards the back.

T- Tons of basic oatmeal stout flavor with just enough chocolate to get the job done. Excellent job Tyranena!

M- Very smooth in the front with enough carbonation to leave you begging for more

O- A winner! A brewery I was afraid to try for fear of a let down but this is very impressive!
